Antique Rubies Crown A Gold Ring
For 40th anniversaries, there is only one gemstone to turn to: the king of gems. Rubies take centre stage in this original ring crafted to celebrate the fourth decade of Her Majesty the Queen’s reign.
A pair of unheated Burmese cushion-cut rubies 4.47ct total, reset from a pair of antique earrings, are set into the tips of this crossover ring. Both prongs have been angled just so to allow a spectacular view of the gems. The profile of the recycled 18ct Yellow Gold ring has been shaped to mirror the cut of the antique stones and is further accented by 38 round-brilliant rubies, a symbolic total of 40 rubies in the ring. The design of the ring was inspired by a sketch found in the archives of Philip Antrobus, the jeweller that created the Queen’s engagement ring and which is owned by sixth-generation British family jeweller Pragnell.
Unheated Burma Cushion Cut Ruby Masterpiece Cross Over Ring, 4.47ct, set in recycled 18ct Yellow Gold.
Each piece in Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee Collection will be engraved ‘one of seven’ and sold with a new drawing, hand-painted by Pragnell artisans, will tour our showrooms in London’s Mayfair, Stratford-upon-Avon and Leicester in May, ahead of the official Platinum Jubilee celebrations in early June.
